December was a big month for concerts in Melbourne and I found myself at two of them: U2 and Muse. My flatmate is a huge fan of U2 and because the tickets were cheap I went along too. It was an awesome concert, even though we were sitting in the highest row behind the stage. During the concert I had the idea to crochet the band. So with the help of some hastily scribbled notes and some photos that my flatmate took, here is the result.
A few weeks later my favorite band Muse were playing. Having already started making U2, I thought I might as well make Muse too. Of course the lead singer was wearing a suit that made him look like a human mirror ball. A really hard effect to duplicate in yarn. But after some experimentation with metallic thread, I think it turned out okay.
And what am I going to do with all these little guys? I gave U2 to my flatmate for Christmas. Muse I am keeping for myself.
